Hi ladies! I am from TTCAL…I hope that you don't mind that I am posting here! If this is not appropriate, please let me know. It is so great to see so many ladies on a board that is parenting after a loss! Everyone deserves to be on this end
I won't be able to get back on to the board until around 4, so please don't think that I am being rude if I don't answer until then!! I appreciate any one who takes the time to read.
I will try my best to not go into any more detail than you need to know…I don't want to bore anyone!
My DH (33) and I (32) got PG after NTNP March 2013. It ended in a MMC at 6w4d & resulted in a D&C. As per my ob/gyn's advice, we waited 3 months before trying again. We tried - charted, temping, OPKs, etc., with no luck. My ob/gyn ended up giving me Clomid in December 2013 - probably because he has known me since I was 16 and knew I felt pressure that I was getting to an age where the older I got, the more age worked against me. I now know that I shouldn't have taken the medicine without being closely monitored, but I just was happy that I was told that "people get pregnant almost all of the time on this if there are no fertility problems." The other thing that I should mention is that when I was 16, I gave birth to a completely healthy baby boy, but gave him up for adoption. Although it was definitely the right thing to do, it haunts me now, in my infertility struggles. Clomid made me form cysts and did not work.
Anyway, I have been under the care of an RE since April. We have tried IUI with Femara (and only an Ovidrel trigger once). The second try worked, and on June 6, we found out we were PG. I was cautiously optimistic, as was DH, but I really tried to stay on the more optimistic side. PgAL brain took over the week that I knew something was off, and when I asked for another u/s to check on the baby (after we first saw a heartbeat 2 days before), the heart rate was only 63. We waited over the weekend, but I told DH that this was not going to "rally" as he kept saying. Tues, July 2, the RE confirmed what I knew in my heart, and it was another MMC…there was still a heart beat at 7w; we lost the baby some time between 7w - 7w3d. I had a D&E the next day.
So, they tested DH and I. My auto-immune panel came back neg, I have no thyroid problems, our karyotyping came back negative, and the part that haunts & confuses me - the testing on the embryo came back that HE was perfectly normal. So basically, I MC a healthy baby boy, and I am "perfectly normal." RE sent out more blood work for more rare blood disorders and genetic mutations, but he doesn't think I have any of it.
My question - are there any success stories on this board of women who have had all testing come back as normal, maybe had a healthy embryo & MC, but ended up having a successful PG? I feel like I am grasping at straws & trying to find some hope.
Thank you, so very much, for taking the time to read this if you made it this far.
